According to multiple sources, the Borough of Conshohocken is moving towards returning the four fire trucks removed from the Washington Fire Company No. 1 on July 5th and restoring the fire company to active service.
The Borough removed the trucks from the fire company over a dispute involving auditing. Once the dispute went public, the fire company made a presentation at a Borough Council meeting and offered to put $13,000 in escrow while audits took place. $13,000 was the total amount the Borough felt was not properly accounted for.
There has been no public update since that meeting in mid-July.
The restoration of the Washington Fire Company No. 1 to active service will come via a “memorandum of understanding” between the Borough and the fire company. We are told that Borough Council will approve this memorandum at a public meeting in the near future.
More to come.
